James Marshall Wolfe, 317 Wilson Ave., was charged with possession of marijuana for resale, maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold and conspiracy to sell marijuana.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office authorities in Orlando, Fla., alerted area law enforcement about a suspicious package that was being sent through FedEx from Eureka, Calif., to Wolfe’s residence, according to the police report.
The OCSO narcotics agent obtained the FedEx tracking number for the package, and area investigators were able to track it to the FedEx facility in Blountville.
Inside the package, police found 7.7 pounds of hydroponically grown marijuana with an estimated street value of $50,000, according to the report.
Officers resealed the package and attempted to deliver the package to Wolfe’s residence.
With an investigator posing as a FedEx delivery driver, Wolfe reportedly met the officer on his front porch and signed for the package. After signing, Wolfe was immediately taken into custody.
After searching Wolfe’s residence, police reportedly found several loaded firearms, drug paraphernalia and more marijuana inside the residence.
Wolfe was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $60,000 bond pending a Sessions Court appearance Monday.
